Senate Questions FBI Director About Detention Rules, "Fast & Furious"

Washington, DC
Wednesday, December 14, 2011

FBI Director Robert Mueller was on the Hill to update the Senate Judiciary Committee on how the detention provisions in this year's defense bill could affect FBI operations.

The Defense Authorization bill that came out of a House/Senate conference committee contains a provision that would expand military power over suspected terrorists and require detention of those suspects to be held in military custody even if they were caught in the U.S.

Director Mueller also addressed "Fast and Furious," an ATF sting operation aimed at stopping the illegal flow of weapons into Mexico.
